Police have arrested two men in last month's fatal shooting of a Carroll Park teen during a street robbery in West Oak Lane.

Qurian Sullivan, 22, of Fairmount Avenue near 39th Street in Mantua, and Onzie Tate, 20, of Parkside Avenue near 51st in West Philadelphia, were charged with murder, robbery, burglary and related offenses in the May 21 shooting of Marquine Pickett, 19, of Master Street near 58th, police spokeswoman Officer Christine O'Brien said. The duo allegedly attacked Pickett on Stenton Avenue near Gorgas Avenue just before 9:30 p.m., O'Brien said. Pickett died of a gunshot wound to the chest at Albert Einstein Medical Center later that night, she added.

According to his obituary, Pickett was a devout Muslim who loved to read and write, make music and do carpentry work.
